More fun with the New Release

Hi everyone, well it’s Friday… let the weekend begin!

Today I would normally do a post for our current weekly challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs but I am having so much fun with the new release dies I couldn’t help myself.  I made a project using some of my New Release dies and I was having so much fun I pulled out some of my oldies but goodies to do a second project.

For my first project, I want to show you a card I made using the new Lacey Christmas Ornaments.  They are so delicate and pretty and I know you are going to have a lot fun using them.  They even have a built-in hanger so you can actually hang them up!  How cool is that!  I also thought the Merry Christmas sentiment was the perfect accompaniment to make a lovely Christmas Card.

Here’s a closer look so you can see what I mean.

For this project I used the following dies:

B215 – Expandable Tiny Borders
B216 – Wreath Strip
B160 – Queen Anne’s Lace Border
B186 – Merry Christmas Set
DL227 – Lacey Christmas Ornaments
XL-7 – Oval – Classic – LG Stackers Nesting Dies

As well and in keeping with this weeks challenge theme Corner Adorners (must use a corner embellishment), my second project is a card in honor of a sweet friend.    I know she loves these colors together and the inspiration for the color combination came from her.  For this card I used the Spring Flower Burst Doily die with Angel Wing and cut it once in each color.  I then cut and layered sections of the doily with each of the colors to get this effect.  It is a little time-consuming but the results are so worth it.  I hope you will give it a try : )

Here is photo of how it came together:

For this project I used the following dies:

B117S – Mini Fanciful Flourish
B149 – Cuties 1
B165 – Lace Corner Deco E
D137 – Sweet Williams
DL221 – Spring Flower Burst Doily
XM-7 – Oval
